If nothing else we dressed the place up a little. Hargraves got railroaded by Hollywood Burrows and a couple other bonesmokers over there.

He's "managing the cap" splendidly, which means YOU are "Wrongo Luongo"
Speaking of the 600lb gorilla in the cap space.
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.

242 was the heaviest I got to. Right now I’m 6ft (not 5ft 11) somewhere in the 220s. I need to dump 15 lbs

Yeah it was bad. I like beer too much. As I said I’m a bit lighter now but I’d like to get down to 210.

How heavy are you? I guess those chicken thighs keep your weight down

I agree with the beer's BMac, I love beer to much too. It's the nectar of the gods.

Dude must be hungover today. Got rip roaring drunk on the DTES and stumbling around Hastings Street all hours of the night. Shadow boxing and shouting at the hookers and doing the rock walk.

Besides the regular July 1st UFA, there is the college UFA's, like NCAA UFA defencemen.

This year one should keep tabs on Jimmy Schuldt (superb LD) + Robby Jackson (Hab's Poehling's line mate and best scorer).

Schuldt is 23 yrs, 6'1 - 205 lbs LD, can score a lot, plays physical edge/feisty - loves to send out punishing hits, tons of blocked shots and he enjoys having a solid +/-.

from last year.
While Schuldt himself doesn't seem to care too much about his point total, the offensive side to his game is where he excels the most. He patrols the offensive blue line with confidence and has a rocket of a shot, one that has been constantly fed by his teammates.

The defenceman has recorded an average of more than three shots per game this season, which places him fourth in the NCAA for defenceman, and has him trail only Mikey Eyssimont in this category on St. Cloud’s roster.

He is a grade-A weapon on the Huskies' power play, scoring eight of his 10 goals with the man advantage. His team recognizes his talent on the point and often tries to maximize movement at the top of the zone to find a lane for him to fire in.
He has a very quick release on his slapshot, but it doesn't prevent him from generating some real power behind it. This combination of speed and strength would already be deadly, but Schuldt is also accurate, and has beaten many goalies cleanly this season.

There lies his biggest NHL upside. His sharpshooting abilities from the blue line means that he should be able to put up some points in the big league, even in an environment where time and space is reduced.

St. Cloud's captain isn't only a big shooter. He is an integral part of the team's defence, and someone who cares most about his plus/minus at the end of the night and is a big shot blocker.

He plays the game with an edge, enjoying physical play, and rarely turns down an opportunity for a hit.

Robbie Jackson is a small dude 5'9 but he's fast and skilled.

So I felt like wasting some time over at CapFriendly today.....

Leivo $1.75M - Pettersson - Boeser $7.5M
Baertschi - Horvat - Virtanen
Eriksson - Gaudette - Spooner
Roussel - Beagle - Sutter
MacEwen

Edler $4.5M - Karlsson $11M
Juolevi $863K - Tanev
Hughes $2M - Gudbranson
Stecher
Biega

Markstrom
Demko $1.75M



I gave Boeser $7.5M x 5 years.....he might come cheaper?
Leivo got a 2 year extension.
Edler $4.5 x 5.
Karlsson $11M x 7.
Hughes cap hit could be lower than that $2M, but I'm factoring in a few bonuses.
Demko gets a 2 year deal, which is par for the course for young backups who are hoping to push for a starting role.

Total cap hit of $78.536M. You could still re-sign Hutton and push Juolevi and Hughes to fight for spots (competition is healthy after all) as there is no guarantee that either of them are ready for the NHL game yet.

That's with Schaller buried and still costing, and not moving out anyone like Stecher or Sutter.

Mostly I was just trying to prove that offering Karlsson the big dollars is very doable for Vancouver right now as the cap will continue to climb, and Sutter and Eriksson combine for over $10M of cap space that can be replaced for about 60% of the cost as contract renewals come due for Pettersson, Virtanen, and others.
